How our service can help you
Mulberry 1 is an 11-bed assessment unit for people experiencing acute mental health problems.
Admissions to the ward are usually from the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment team and a typical stay is between 24 and 72 hours. Medical reviews take place daily Monday to Friday. We work with people to identify support they need in the community so they can be safely discharged and to promote longer term recovery at home.
The team comprises doctors, nurses, occupational therapists and a activity coordinator who will all assist in the development of an ongoing recovery focused care plan.
